Coaching Philosophy

I strive to get my players out of their comfort zone, getting 1% better every day. While my focus is dependent upon age/level, 95% of the game is without the ball. What is the player thinking about? What are the pictures and problems they are facing? Can I help them with possible solutions. With just the right amount of fun and laughter to go with it!

Spending time with my nephews, great food, traveling, chess, backgammon

Favorite club

The teams I’m working with. And Man City 😬

A good coach is one who helps his players maximize or discover their potential. That is his principal function.
